This episode was so beautiful and emotional and I loved it. I was seriously tearing up at the end when Chihaya went out on stage and couldn't sing but everyone came out and supported her. Then when her younger self and little brother showed up I really started crying, I just couldn't help it. You could tell how tormented she'd been by the accident and his death and once she was able to sing again and smile while doing so you really felt as if she'd finally found closure.
This is one of the best episodes of the show in my opinion.

It has everything
Problem was the beginning was slow and a lot different from what its become. Many people simply rated it low and left the series before it got better, hence a lot of low scores are stuck in there that probably won't be changed unless people hear it being talked about and decide to give it a second chance.
I've come to realize Idolmaster is a deceptive show at times. Sure, there's all the moe and fluff and it has its boring and generic episodes, but really, for the most part it's a good anime. At first, I actually went into Idolmaster thinking it was going to be a harem ridden with fanservice. Not sure why I thought that...
Glad to know I was wrong on that part. And with this, it culminated with an amazingly directed episode. Chihaya's performance was wonderfully done. What a strong and powerful voice.
